Center for Career Education: This week at CCE: Sept. 4-7, 2012

Happy first day of the Fall Semester!

GOOD NEWS - Last year, we had over 20,000 opportunities in LionSHARE covering a diverse range of industries including media, government, auction houses, museums, finance, fashion, consulting, engineering and technology, and community development organizations (they recruit in different ways and at different times so don't fall for the hype that all we do is finance!). We also had over 800 alumni volunteers to support you through our programs. We expect to continue with this wealth of offerings and recommend that you do 3 things this semester to filter our resources and services to your needs and interests:

1. Set up a job agent in LionSHARE to be notified in a daily digest of new positions;
2. Create or update your resume ; and
3. Meet with a career counselor at CCE (you can also meet us at the Fun Run on Sept. 7).

As Prof. Vallancourt said at the Academic Assembly for the 2016 SEAS class - Connect! We look forward to reconnecting with those of you returning to campus, connecting with those of you starting out at Columbia, and connecting you all to opportunities.

Graduating students, we’ll be sending you some tailored communications this semester so look out for emails from my colleague, Alicia Wells.

Warmest regards,
Niamh and all at CCE
